In Spanish. Two pages used of four, cr. 8vo, bifolium, writing seeped through but text still legible. Ulloa's secretary has written on the right half of the two pages, Serrano a note of 13ll on the left on p.1. Apparently Ulloa is suggesting that freed Slaves ("emancipados") should be used to populate (colonise) Spanish Colonies in the Gulf of Guinea.
